Commenting on the impending launch of the special edition of the Ford Transit Custom, Block commented “I’m really stoked with how this collaboration turned out,” He added. “I always thought that maybe someday I’d have a signature Ford vehicle, but I never thought that it’d be a van! Ha! I really like this thing though, it’s super practical for me since I have a wife and three kids and we travel a ton. This Ford Transit has the look and styling that I like, is fun to drive and manages to hold us and all of our stuff. We’ve been running around Norway in a test unit the last week and a half and I’m blown away by the looks and attention this thing has been getting. Plus my wife and kids like it, so it’s a win-win in my book.”
